Photographer Clayton Cubitt has launched a new web series called Hysterical Literature. In the series, women will sit at a table and read aloud. Hang on, there’s a twist. While they are reading a loud, they are being stimulated underneath the table.
For the first session, Cubitt recruited porn star and intellectual Stoya. Watch as she reads from Supervert’s Necrophilia Variations. We wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t hint that there is something very cool that happens at the five and a half minute mark.
Here is Stoya’s perspective on the whole experience:
“As I start reading, my disbelief is suspended. I forget what is about to happen. The first touch on my thigh sends all available blood to my vulva. I continue to enunciate properly, focusing on the text. I’ve broken a sweat.
If this goes on for much longer my hair will be plastered to my head with perspiration as though I’ve been working out or engaging in acrobatic man/woman penetrative fucking. I stumble over a word, my concentration breaks as I go back to pronounce it correctly. Neither the Hitachi or the woman wielding it will be denied, but in the interests of art (and because this feels so beautifully filthy I don’t want it to stop yet) I hold out as long as I can.
This section of the world that I’m inhabiting slows down, zooms in. Like a stretched rubber band it suddenly contracts, and I am lovingly punched with an orgasm.” via Tumblr.
Sounds like fun, right? We’ll be following Clayton Cubitt closely from now on in anticipation for Hysterical Literature Session Two. Any guesses who it might be?
